Sorry but whilst the food was edible (barely) the pub and staff are not good at all.... Well at least if you are from outside the area they are not. It was evident by many people in the restaurant that the locals were attended to constantly whilst non locals well you were lucky that the staff came to your table when they were serving the food. There was 80/90s music playing overly loud and guess what they asked the locals if it was too loud but no one else. When i went to pay i was suprised, well not really, that loads of people complaining. One customer stated that the Pub till got more attention than the paying customers and he was right. Not sure where all the good reviews for this place come from but i can hazard a guess. If you are looking for somewhere to eat then yes you can get something however please be aware that unless you are local you have had it with service.

Recommended by a local Nissan car sales man after purchasing new car. He'll be getting a pat on the back for such a good find.
We luckily got there early as it did start to pack up for a Sunday lunch rush and the outside seating by the river was very busy also.
The Sunday lunch was brilliantly prepared - nice just getting the vegetables on the side, all of which were cooked perfectly, along with the meat.
The deserts were very good, the caramel & chocolate pot being my favourite, and very very sweet.
Well worth finding this pub if you're in the area and enjoying a nice meal.
Next time I'm not driving so I can enjoy a pint of Pride...

Just had a fantastic meal here. Everything is homemade. The gentleman that owns/runs it was very lovely and welcoming and looked after us so well. The food was super. For anyone who wants a massive but tasty meal I reccomend the double bacon beef burger! The stuffed chicken breast was also fantastic. Location was great being next to the river.

We had a baguette and ordered chips as a side for £1.50 extra each, there weren't very many chips. Also we ordered a sausage for our dog, which took ages to come, we had already eaten our meal before it came, even though we asked 2 members of staff. The baguettes were good though.

One of the old out-of-town traditional pubs in the area. Only open for a short period while it's up for offers of being sold. Nice location apart from being right on the Botley road. Lots of potential if done right so watch this space.

One of my favourite pubs. Great food, lovely staff, and a pretty much perfect location. It is worth building up your appetite with a walk along the riverbank. Definite thumbs up.

Check out this Pub! Great food, friendly service and fantastic location with the river running alongside, perfect for a pit-stop on a walk or just coming through for lunch!

A great, dog friendly country pub with a roaring fireplace, a good selection of food and excellent bar staff. Needs a better selection of ales though!

For sale again. No food. No beer on tap. Old guy behind the bar which we thought might have a heart attack before he finished serving.

This was my first visit since the change of landlady, the food was not as good as it used to be. Not somewhere I would rush back to.

Food took a long time but it was good. Could do with some heating as it was rather draughty & chilly

Car parking can be tight at peak times, but nice inside with reasonable food and not too bad overall.

Decent country style pub. Good simple food and love to canoe there from Lower Swanwick

Incredibly slow service since it's been taken over and my burger was undercooked.

Losing the character that it once had, but still a safe bet for food and drink.

Had a really nice meal (Pork Belly with Chorizo mash and roast winter veg).

Unlike the website there is no food on offer and a small range of drinks.

Proper country pup, with a nice garden to start and finish a river walk.
